Curran will become just the third Southcity player to chalk up 200 games.

The 29-year-old has been there the start, joining the Weissel Cup team when the club was first established in 2005 and has been a regular fixture since then.

Only Matt Ward and Kieran Schauf have played more games for the club.

With Southcity flying high again this season, Curran continues to enjoy his footy and isn’t really focused on the personal achievement.

Instead he’s just happy to continue relishing the club’s success.

“We are travelling along pretty well and have had a fair bit of success over the last few of years which has been good,” Curran said.

“I just enjoy the club and there are plenty of good people around.”

After coming off the bench for most of last season, Curran has cemented his place in the second row this time around.

He credits a good run with injuries as the catalyst for the change.

While he’s struggled with knee injuries in the past, including having surgery on both, he sat out a large chunk of last year with a hamstring complaint.

However he hasn’t missed a game so far this season.

“I’ve just got fit and haven’t been injured,” Curran said.

“I’ve been working on the combination with Rosey (Nathan Rose) and it is going along pretty well.

“I missed nine games last year after I torn by hammy and when Mick Glanville injured himself that position opened up.”

With two premierships to his credit with the Bulls, plus two more grand final defeats, Curran is looking to add to an impressive with the ladder leaders.

“I’ve been pretty lucky to be in four as it is but getting above 50 per cent would be nice,” he said.

Curran isn’t the only Bulls player to have a milestone game on the eve of the finals.

Tim Hurst will play his 150th as well.

With the minor premiership already sown up, Southcity are looking to head into the week off with a win over one of their biggest rivals.
